Last Sunday I was helping Tiffany clean out the garage in her old house. OOPS!! Slipped on a black plastic trash bag and fell on the concrete floor. Went home, took a shower and a couple of Tylenol and laid down for a while. When I went to get up, I couldn't put any weight on the left foot.
Went to the ER and they Xrayed the foot and said I had a couple of tiny bones broken and wrapped it in an ace bandage. So, Friday I went to my podiatrist and he put me in this brace. Also, noticed my big toe was all swollen and black. I had damaged my toe nail and so, he removed it.
But, I am in no pain and the brace is helping with support. I am very grateful that I didn't break anything else. This old age is not for sissies. LOL
Now, on to more pleasant things...
flowers are doing well....
still getting a few roses. This bush was yellow to start out and now they are soft white????
Lots of these bright little things...
and these gorgeous lilies just popped up all over the flower beds yesterday. I am having to water twice a day to keep everything alive. We hit 101 yesterday with a heat index of 109.
Picked the girls up this week one day and took them to Chic-Fil-A for dinner and to play in the inside playground.
It's just been too hot for them to go outside.
Little Miss Kaycee sliding down the slide. A year ago today she was dismissed from the hospital after numerous trips there because of her lung problems. We are blessed that she has gone a year without having to go to the ER and endure a stay in the hospital. God is good!
Another day, we just went to their new home to play until Tiffany got home. Laynee was reading to me from her diary. That little girl has quite an imagination. She just read and read about what all she does and writes in her journal.
Then they decided to wear Tiffany's boots.
They are so funny and such a blessing to me. Trust me, with the three of them I have no time to be down in the dumps.
Laycee thought the stickers looked better on her face than on the paper. LOL
Remember the terrible thunderstorm we had last week? These two photos were taken in the drive way waiting in the car for the rain to slow down.
It didn't happen for several hours. We had 90 mph winds and several inches of rain in a couple of hours. Glad that is over. I have gotten all of the limbs cut up and the city will come pick them on on 8-4.
Can't wait to show you my latest project I have started. Due to foot injuries, it may be a couple of weeks before I can finish it up.
Just a teaser - hint: it's the entry.
